After bleaching my black hair multiple times with bleach (peroxide), I finally reached a somewhat blonde colour, and opted to use a less harsher product to lighten my hair. It worked wonderfully, and I got compliments on how great the blonde looked! I have recommended this product to many of my friends and they love it too. :)

I used this product to go from brown to blonde hair a few times but I really wouldn't recommend it for that, I would only use this if I had dark-medium blonde hair and wanted to go a few shades lighter, it causes a lot of damage to get the job done but it is bleach so what else can you expect, I would recommend going to your hairdresser for any dramatic colour changes.

It works mostly!
I have brown - light brownish hair and i tried just doing streaks with this. It worked on some of my streaks and they went about the same blonde as on the box, but a majority of them just went ginger. A couple of days after i originally dyed it, I went out and bought the same stuff again and went over the same ones that went a gingery colour. After that, all the streaks were the same blonde as on the box :) i'm very happy with it now!

IT WORKED!! .... mostly
I'm a natural brunette, and I've been wanting to do something crazy and drastic with my hair for a while now and usually you have to bleach before any of the real results will occur.
I didn't want to fully bleach my hair nor did I want to go to a salon to get it done...being a student has many downsides financially, so I thought why not Nordic, although on the box it does say that for dark brown to black coloured hair it will only have a lightening effect it didn't worry me too much as long as it did something!
First thing I noticed was it had a grainy feel, I wasn't sure if that's how it was suppose to be so I prayed it would work. After a few minutes I could see yellow, I nearly did a happy dance, after about 45 mins I washed my hair dried it a little and had a look at my new colour. I had dyed my hair a really really dark brown a month or more beforehand so I essentially had my roots look like the colour on the box and about 5cm from that a clear line of difference, the rest of my hair was a copper colour. So that was the lightening effect, the box said about. Definitely be aware of that if you have dyed some of your hair black.
I did use the Toner in the same brand and didn't see too much difference of my copper colour but it's been a few weeks and after using a 'Bleach Blonde' shampoo and conditioner, my hair is healthy and I really like the different colours. I was after something wild and crazy and it definitely gave it to me. Although I was thinking more pink and purple :-/

worst thing ever !
I would not recommend this, my hair was a little bit lighter than dark brown and the box says it will lighten it up 6-8 shades( for dark hair) I have hideous blonde and orange roots and the rest of my hair is exactly the same !!! Do not use this, my hair is completely rewind and dead even after treating it, my hair was very healthy and now it's falling out, horrible horrible horrible !!!

can i just say brilliant?!
i really honestly loved this!! i have dark brown - almost black hair and this turned it into a gorgeous auburn brown with gold highlights. i didn't even leave it on for long enough because i was scared of going orange. i shouldn't have worried though because i love the result. it did dry my hair out a bit obviously but after some extra TLC my hair felt reasonably healthy again.
i will be using this again and recommend it to others :)

Made me blonde!
I used this to dye my hair blonde for the first time. I had to use a pre-lightner and since my hair is rather long, I had to use about four boxes to get it a proper color. I used it with the Nordic Blonde toner it turned out rather well. I would certainly use it again!

I used this product after removing Black hair dye, My hair was a dark ginger after removing the Black and although it didn't lighten my hair as much as the box stated it did bring it down a couple of shades without any damage.
The only down side to this product is that it smelt very strong and burnt my eyes but overall I was very happy with the results.

MY HG product for lighter hair!
I will start by saying I always dye my own hair. Also that my mother is an ex hairdresser. So with that being said I never go to the hairdresser to be honest they scare the living daylight out of me. Because of this I've always either done my own or had my mother do it. This is by far the most foolproof way to lighten your hair at home. Of course if you have never dyed your own hair before this is something that I would strongly NOT recommend. My natural hair colour is a medium brown and this paired with the silver toner by the same brand gives me the quickest, lightest blonde hair that actually isn't too damaged. Of course I follow up with treatments as I am basically bleaching it every 6 weeks but I've found the results with this have been very consistent and my hair is still surprisingly strong!
